Ravi Bhalla Joins Schenck Price as Counsel

Schenck Price is pleased to welcome Ravi Bhalla, as Counsel. Ravi is well-known as the current mayor of Hoboken. He has served on the Hoboken City Council since 2009 and was elected Hoboken’s 39th mayor in 2017 and re-elected last month. He is New Jersey’s first Sikh mayor, as well as the first elected mayor in the United States who is a Sikh.

Ravi has practiced law for 18 years, previously working for two New Jersey law firms as well as his own practice. In his legal career, Ravi has developed a reputation as a results-oriented litigator and trial attorney, concentrating in the areas of commercial litigation, white-collar criminal defense, labor and employment, and land use and redevelopment law. Ravi gained national recognition for his legal advocacy after suffering a violation of his own constitutional and civil rights during a jail visit to a client. The incident motivated him to lead a successful campaign to reform the federal government’s visitation policies at correctional facilities nationwide.

Ravi has earned a reputation as a civil rights attorney, particularly with respect to advocating for the rights of Asian-Americans and other communities of color, both in the workplace and in connection with public accommodation and police misconduct and excessive force claims.  He will be helping our firm in its own diversity and inclusion efforts as a member of our Diversity & Inclusion Committee.
